Yes! the fashion people got invited again to watch a resort season fashion show at a breathtaking location: Palais Bulles in Théoule-sur-Mer, France.

This huge house, at the Cote D’azur, is designed by architect Antti Lovag, commissioned in 1975 by the industrialist Pierre Bernard.
The present house owner is fashion designer Pierre Cardin.
The huge Barbapapa-like Palais Bulles was used as venue for the Dior Resort 2016 fashion show (on the 11th of May 2015). We posted earlier on the house of Bob Hope in palm springs which was used for the Louis Vuitton resort 2016 fashion collection, an equally dream-like location. But maybe we like the house of Pierre Cardin more because it’s pink and friendly. Uhmppff; We will refrain from further architectural comments.

We did find info on the web, if you’re interested in the building and want to see more images surf to the following sites;
